Inspired sign Norwegian agreement

TAGs: Inspired, Norsk Tipping, Norway

Norwegian vikingServer based gaming (SBG) provider Inspired Gaming Group (INGG) has signed an agreement with Norwegian gaming operator Norsk Tipping. The four-year deal will see INGG provide content for an estimated 3,000 terminals, a number likely to rise further in the future.

Mat Ingram, Managing Director of Games at Inspired, commented: “It is fantastic to be awarded one of only three game developer contracts by such a well-respected organization and we’re proud to have proven our strengths in the highly competitive tender process. It is testament to the quality of the games the team in the UK is producing and how highly regarded they are in the market.

“Norsk Tipping explicitly wanted a variety of content types, which is one of the reasons that we were chosen. As a global leader in gaming and skill content, the breadth of our game portfolio makes us a great partner for them.”

INGG’s HD Gaming slots, fixed odds and other content will be supplied for the operator’s Multix VLT platform. The first games are expected to go live in September and the agreement will mean INGG will have to modify current versions of its software to comply with Norwegian regulations.

Torbjorn Almlid, CEO at Norsk Tipping, added, “The range and diversity of content produced by Inspired sets the company apart from many of the other operators that we saw in the tender process. This range, taken together with Inspired’s ability to customise their content for our platform and regulatory environment, makes them the perfect fit for our particular needs. We are looking forward to the first set of games going live on our machines and we are sure they will provide excellent entertainment value for our players.”

It’s unclear yet as to whether Inspired will be developing any country specific for Norway. An extension of their virtual sports product to include viking battles with a soundtrack of battle metal.
